Hi everyone, my name is Thea Eskey and I would describe my work as post-apocalyptic,
pop art, and surreal photography.
Do you use any lens to shoot. If you do, which is your favorite lens? Why?
The name is my series is the #IphoneOnlySeries and as you can guess that means that I
only use the camera on my iPhone to take all my pictures. The reason why I do this is to
continue the pop art tradition of taking what is usually seen as skilled, or “high” art,
producing it in a way that is easy to replicate, and making it available to a mass audience.
When you go in one of your travels, what all you take with you? Why?
When I go to take pictures the things that I take with me are my iPhone (of course), my
ear buds, some sweet tunes, (anything alternative or indie but especially anything Lana
Del Rey, or as I like to call her Lana Del Bae) and my eyes so that I can discover new
images. The reason why I take out my music with my camera is because I find that often
times music will help set the mood or inspire the various pictures that I will take.
Among the gadgets that you own, is there something that you wish you hadn’t
Out of all the camera equipment that I own, the thing that I wish I hadn’t bought was a
super expensive, top of the line Sony camera because I rarely use it anymore, especially
for this series.
In you phone, What are your settings?
dual 12 MP, (28mm, f/1.8, OIS & 56mm, f/2.8) with 1/3″
sensor size @ 28mm, 1/3.6″ sensor size @ 56mm, and phase detection autofocus.
What kind of tools do you use for post processing? Explain your workflow.
In keeping with the pop art nature of my photos, the only tools that I use for
post-production processing are the filters and editing tools on Instagram. As a rule the
first thing that I’ll do is choose whether I want the image in square or a rectangle framing,
which is done by hitting the two arrows facing away from each other at the bottom left of
the picture that is being edited. Then, the next thing that I’ll do is choosing the filter that I
